About International J/22 Class Association
People say the J/22 is the best sailing boat they’ve ever been on. It’s responsive, stable with its fixed lead keel and safe, as much fun to single-hand with main only as it is to plane under spinnaker in 18 knots of wind. The J/22 is the choice of one-design fleets and institutional sailing programs worldwide because she has proven to be a great value and a favorite among juniors and adults alike.
